Police Investigate Assault at Arlandria Convenience Store

Alexandria Police are investigating an assault that occurred at the 24 Hour Express Food Store in Arlandria on Wednesday night.

Police received the call at around 9:15 p.m. and found a man with non-life threatening injuries. The victim was transported to The George Washington University Hospital and was conscious when he spoke to police, according to scene commander Sergeant Mark Blackwell.

“There were witnesses,” Blackwell told ALXnow, adding that the suspect has been identified, but not arrested.

Police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine said that the victim received a cut on one of his hands.

What prompted the incident is unclear, and the incident occurred outside the shop. Shop management have also supplied police of security footage of the incident.
